Discover history on modern paths in Magdeburg

    In the Elbe metropolis of Magdeburg, medieval history, unique art sculptures and varied leisure activities are all close together. Magdeburg looks back on more than a thousand years of history. The current state capital of Saxony-Anhalt was mentioned as early as the ninth century by Charlemagne. In the Middle Ages, the Benedictine monastery of St. Mauritius was located on the square where the cathedral now dominates the cityscape as a landmark. Not far from there is the Hundertwasserhaus, which forms a contrast to the historic buildings. The ideal starting point for a city tour is IntercityHotel Magdeburg. The university city on the Elbe offers picturesque views of the city along the approximately 4-kilometer-long river promenade. The Elbauenpark extends over an extensive area with a lakeside stage for cultural events. There is also a large, winding labyrinth and a long summer toboggan run. Sports activities such as climbing and skating round off the park's range of experiences.
